Hello, readers and friends. Today Finding Wonderland is extending its excitement from bookstagram to share a little cover reveal for Sara Ella’s Coral.
The author of the ‘Unblemished’ trilogy, Sara Ella’s charming purple-hued fantasy series re-imagined the Beauty and the Beast legend. In 2019, she returns with a new re-telling. This time it’s for the beloved fairy tale, The Little Mermaid. Today I am honored to be a small part of the (bookstagram, @Rissi006) team who gets to help reveal the cover art for this upcoming novel.
As we get excited for the cover (which is really what you all want to see, right?), let’s learn more about Coral and a fun mermaid facts.
This is a contemporary re-imagining of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale. If Disney’s The Little Mermaid is more your style, never fear. This will also blend in parts of the heartwarming of the Disney classic. Coral is a standalone contemporary that promises to be quite the adventure. Also, fun fact! On November 13 1989, The Little Mermaid (Disney) premiered in New York City! Fun, right?
Here’s the synopsis for Coral.
SYNOPSIS | There is more than one way to drown.
Sixteen-year-old mermaid, Coral, has always been different, standing out from her stoic sisters in a society where blending in is key. Worse yet, she fears she has been afflicted with the dreaded Disease. Said to be carried by humans, the Disease imposes emotions on its victims, causing them to commit unspeakable acts. The growing illness inside her, while terrifying, fascinates her very core. Where others see danger, Coral sees life. Could it be the colorless merfolk who are truly ill?
Above the sea, seventeen-year-old Brooke Jordan has nothing left to give. A homeless girl abandoned and forgotten, the only thing Brooke can rely on is the ocean. Her aching feet find refuge within the cool and comforting waves, while her broken heart grows harder with each passing day. If only she could heal from the pain caused by her past.
When Brooke and Coral’s worlds collide, everything alters in an instant. From learning to stand alone, to discovering the strength it takes to rely on another, the girls find that living requires taking that first painful breath. Each must make sacrifices, and when it comes to finding true love? Let’s just say the boys in their lives must learn to swim if they’re ever going to survive the storms.
Battling the odds against them, the girls will do whatever it takes to survive. But what must end for love and life to finally begin?
Taking a new twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairy tale, this modern-day story explores the effects of mental health from several perspectives, questioning what it means to be human in a world where humanity often seems lost. – Goodreads
